The market is still down compared to the dollar and overall inflationary adjustments. The Nasdaq is barely back and is still half of what it was in the year 2000. The stimuluses were not for the economy but for the big banks to keep on trading derivatives contracts and buying up markets around the world. The disconnect is that the us economy is no longer tied to the stock market thanks to them. They have systematically taken it over. Most stocks have underperformed the indexes. The number of 52wk lows was 10-1 the last few months and yet the market kept going higher due to the manipulation of a few of the momentum stocks in the options markets. Thats why they have weeklys now and not just monthlys. It also doesn't like the administration and every time there is a speech from them it tanks hard.
